Special Letter From The Artistic Director, Owen Shapiro
PEACE AND SOCIAL JUSTICE
is the focus of this year’s Syracuse International Film Festival. In 2009 Le Moyne College initiated a festival showcase offilms dealing with the theme of Peace and Social Justice, and since that time has sponsored and hosted this showcase.In 2012 this theme takes on even greater significance in light of the death of Bassel Shahade, a Graduate student in Syracuse University’s College of Visual andPerforming Arts’ Film Program. Bassel was killed while training citizen journalists in his home country of Syria to document with video what was happeningthere. Bassel’s love for his people and desire to help them fight for political, social, and economic freedom led to his decision to take a leave from his studies inSyracuse. Bassel’s honesty, personal integrity, and love for peace and opportunity were acutely felt by all who knew him. He was a model fighter for peace andsocial justice.Peace and Social Justice when seen in terms of the individual’s right to equal opportunity and respect regardless of economic class, race, gender, sexualorientation, nationality or religion also must include a person’s physical and/or mental abilities or disabilities. In this sense, peace and social justice includesanother long-standing feature of our festival - Imaging Disability in Film, a program created by the School of Education at Syracuse University.Peace and Social Justice is about equality, fairness, and equal opportunity, basic values of all major religions and of all democratic societies. In selecting the filmsfor this year’s festival, particularly for the Peace and Social Justice and Imaging Disability showcases, the festival’s selection committees were given the directiveof finding the best and most diverse films to honor Bassel and the festival’s peace and social justice theme.This year, along with Syracuse University and Le Moyne College, we are pleased to recognize Laila and Edward Audi as sponsors of the Peace and Social Justicefestival events and screenings. We are grateful to the Audis who are the founders of the
Bassel Shahade award
